*Please check out this indicator first*
My version of the SMS strategy functions as a TradingView Strategy to show where Long Positions (or Short Positions) could be entered. It also allows for every indicator variable to be altered and fine tuned to try and improve the strategy.
Also, as a bonus I've made an optional addition of a Percentage Trailing Stop.
To fix how it looks please go into Style Settings and un-check every box excluding 'Points Required' and 'Strategy Points'.
Any issues let me know.
Also added optional alternate price source for indicator calculations.
I've taken the description from his script and pasted below for clarification on how the indicator works. I would still advise to check out u/SandRocks99 indicator first.
"SMS is the acronym for the combination of the three prominent indicators; the squeeze momentum, MACD and Stochastic RSI indicator. It aggregates all of three lagging indicators to derive the trend of an underlying instrument. The script outcome works best when applied on weekly, standard charts (i.e. candles stick charts).
In general terms, these are the rules that define the indicator. But bear in mind, there are other miscellaneous factors that can determine the SMS indicator. (Feel free to review the pine code if you'd like):
"If the squeeze momentum is setting a higher weekly candle, add a point"
"If the MACD is closing its divergence from a descending movement, add a point"
"If the MACD crosses to the upside, add a point"
"If the blue line crosses the orange at the bottom of the Stochastic RSI , add one point"
"If the two lines have entered the purple channel from the bottom of the Stochastic RSI , add one point"
If the score is 3/5 or more, the indicator is flashing a bullish signal . If it's 2/5 or below, the indicator is flashing a bearish signal.
You can easily create an alert to trigger when there's a 3/5 point cross or a cross below 2/5, gearing up for a potential reversal in trend.
Finally, don't just trade on this indicator alone. This indicator is not meant to be used alone, rather, it can be a useful guide to understand the generic trend of an instrument by merging together a lot of leading indicators."
Hope this helps.
